What is Kwik Stix?
Kwik Stix solve the dilemma of worry filled paint with mess free fun! The Kwik Stix Formula allows the paint to stay in a semi-solid form that can easily be pushed up or down depending on which way you twist the base of the stick. Similar to a glue stick, the more you twist, the more it goes up! With an array of brilliantly beautiful colors, Kwik Stix empower and encourage the user to experiment with the endless opportunities the colors provide! not only do the colors come with a variety of options, but these colors can be overlapped, masked and mixed to create any color imaginable!
Kwix Stix can draw on practically any surface your heart desires. the basics are covered like drawing on paper and coloring books. But, the fun doesn`t stop there. They can be used to decorate cardboard creations, add any swirls and twirls to a school presentations` poster-board, and spruce up a wooden picture frame or jewelry box! These have the magic to deliver that beautiful design your brain wants to create!
When I first saw Kwik Stix I honestly thought they were colorful glue sticks. I mean, that`s what they appear to be based on the tube. When you take the top off, though, it still sort of looks like a glue stick, but mixed with a pastel. No, these aren`t glue sticks by a long shot, but their designs and feel for use are similar - so to give you an idea of what they`re like. They have no odor. When I started to give them a try, I was impressed. They`re very easy to use and glide smoothly across the paper. No chunks come off like a crayon or pastel would do, but also they`re not watery or drip like paint would do. The color is all smooth and just effortlessly applied. While it doesn`t look wet, it is a slight bit. You only need to allow 90 seconds, max, for your art work to dry though. Best of all they work on a variety of surfaces: paper, canvas, posters, and even wood!
As far as what I think? I absolutely love
these! They`re not messy like paint and the art work comes out absolutely beautiful! It`s perfect for my children! Best of all, they don`t wear down quickly like a glue stick or crayon does. After doing the simple demo on the paper in the above image, the Kwik Stix hardly looked used. So that was super impressive to me and makes me feel as though we`ll be able to get a good bit of use out of them. Get a little bit on your hands? No problem. These easily wash off. Needless to say, I love the results of the artwork done with these, the ease of use and the fact that we can get paint-like results with little to no mess and no worries of them drying up on us. I`m super impressed and definitely recommend them to all parents and educators!
